I am very excited that my long-awaited book “Parallels” has just been released by En Ville Publishing Co. The book’s concept is to juxtapose my street photos taken in different parts of the world (and often years apart) which tell very similar, or related stories. Each 2-page spread displays two such photos side by side. I started assembling these pairs some years ago and have been posting them on Facebook and on my website. Take a look!

On the off chance someone is interested in getting the book (wouldn't it make a great gift for the upcoming Season? :)), it is available on my website //parallels.levtsimring.com/book and on Amazon. If you buy it through my website (which of course would save me Amazon's hefty commission :)), I will gladly sign it for you!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: On my website I activated a special $5 off discount only for my fellow DPCers. To get it, enter DPC in the coupon field at the checkout.

A little data about the book and some snaps (more on the website, link above):

- hardcover with a dust jacket
- 144 pages
- 120 high-quality BW and 6 color plates (FM/stochastic screening technology, no moire)
- 8.5”x8.5” square format
- Author’s preface
- Foreword by Paul Martin (a.k.a. 21_N.gif ubique)

yep, Mark, same $5.95 Priority Mail (1-3 days delivery) throughout USA!

It can be shipped anywhere else too, but unfortunately, it would cost quite a bit more :(. I am trying to find some creative workaround to this problem, though. PM me if you are abroad and interested.

I would buy it simply based on the fact that you look like Leonard Nimoy in your profile pic, if I bought one, would you sign it "To Jason, Live Long and STFU! - Leonard"?

Can't wait to get my copy Lev! Congratulations.
10/06/2015 04:32:16 PM · #11

LOL! If you let me shorten Leonard to Leo, I will do it for you, Jason!

[ at various points of my DPC tenure I was compared with Gilligan, Barry Manilow, Charlie Chaplin, but never before with Leonard Nimoy. I guess I must be aging... In a few years somebody will say I look like Woody Allen :( ]

I think I'm going to have this part made into a button ... and if I could afford it I'd send one to everyone in Congress ... :-)

I'm getting old (or don't text enough) and had to google that and thought it was a Trekkie meme.

Lev, had a look at some of the pictures, a great idea, well worked out and shot!

Congratulations Lev...maybe I'll have the kids order one for me for Hannukah!

Great stuff, you have many wonderful images.
10/07/2015 07:52:04 AM · #17
Nice looking book Lev. Congratulations!
10/07/2015 07:59:23 AM · #18
Congratulations Lev. Your photos are fantastic.
10/07/2015 08:05:07 AM · #19
Congrats that is a superb looking book. After just putting together a personal book of my own photos I appreciate how much work must have gone into this.
10/07/2015 08:22:05 AM · #20
Awesome and Congratulations Lev! You have gifted eyes to see things!
10/07/2015 10:24:44 AM · #21
Ordered - thanks!!
10/07/2015 10:33:16 AM · #22
Looks amazing, Lev. A clever and creative concept that runs far deeper than the as-expected great photography. Congratulations.
10/07/2015 11:14:55 AM · #23
Very nice, adding this to my wishlist.. I will like and share on FB too..
10/07/2015 12:15:27 PM · #24
Congrats Lev! Adding it to my list.
10/07/2015 02:37:23 PM · #25
thank you friends, especially those who ordered the book or plan to do so! I am touched and humbled by your warm response.

By the way, I wanted to have a special discount for my fellow DPCers, but could not figure out a way how because I was using a simple Wordpress shopping cart plugin. But yesterday night I found a way by upgrading to a way more sophisticated shopping cart plugin, so now I can set up discounts and coupons at will. So... if you are still thinking about getting the book, enter the codeword DPC into the coupon field at checkout and get additional $5 off from already discounted book price (so it will come down to $24.95 + shipping). Enjoy! :)

ps. I just refunded $5 to all those who already bought the book
